We loved...- sleeping by the pool under the fans, - flying kites on the beach, - watching the shadows of the live oaks thought the shuttered windows, - walking to the shops for ice cream, lotion, whatever. Thanks for your thoughtfulness & warm hospitality. We want to come again"

  • "The Strachan Carriage House was the site for a wonderful celebration: 14 strong the Foleys, Groves & Greenwalds gathered to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Nana and Bucky – it was a time of fun & celebration – this beautiful house was as comfortable as home, everything at our fingertips, location, location, location – amazing!

    Beaching, fishing, golfing and a grand celebration at the Jekyll Island Club were part of our adventure.

    Anyone lucky enough to discover this wonderful house will have memories for a lifetime."
